Greetings from Australia. Most of the responses on these boards seem to be from American nurses. Many of the issues disscussed are world wide problems but alot of what is being written is quite negative.

I am planning to come work in the USA. I've sat my NCLEX and passed (easily...it wasnt that hard!), and am basically waiting for my green card approval. I've joined a travel agency.

The reason I'm doing this is that I figured it was about time that nursing started working FOR ME. I've always wanted to see America and I figure this is one way of doing it. Besides I'm a really great nurse and feel I have heaps to offer back into the US system.

What I wanted to ask is this:

1.Is it REALLY a bleak a picture as is painted on the boards here?

2. What places are the best places to work in?

3. Which states seem to look after nurses better?

and 4. Do any of you actually enjoy your jobs?

I'd also LOVE to hear from any nurses in the USA who were originally from Australia? Any tips for survival?

I have repeatedly said I enjoy my work as a perdiem RN doing labor/delivery/GYN/newborn nursing. I work when I want and don't get all messed up in day-to-day backbiting and politics this way. It is by far, the best thing I ever did, going perdiem. I am much happier now.
